MEMPHIS, Tennessee — The Memphis Grizzlies will open training camp next month at the University of California San Diego, the alma mater of team owner Robert Pera.
In a team release, the Grizzlies announced they would be training from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3.
This is the first time the Grizzlies have conducted their training camp in San Diego. Since the franchise moved from Vancouver to Memphis in 2001, the Grizzlies have held camp in Memphis nine times and also have traveled to Nashville (2013), Birmingham, Alabama (2009) plus Malaga, Spain (2007), and Barcelona (2003) as part of the NBA Europe Live Tour.
The Grizzlies went 50-32 last year and made their fourth straight playoff appearance, losing in seven games to Oklahoma City in the first round.
